Photos Of The Month #5

We've seen many beautiful, interesting, thought provoking and sad photos this past month. That being said please bear in mind that the following gallery contains images some may find disturbing.

Here are the best and most popular African inspired photos we found from April:

Running Free (@fabriziobignotti)

 Zebras are very fast-moving animals, and can reach speeds of up to 65kmph when galloping across the plains. This is just fast enough to outpace predators such as lions. Foals can run with the herd within a few hours of birth.

Don't Mess With a Lion (@aaronbaggenstos)

 As an African lion stood over its kill, a clan of daring hyenas slowly made their way in enveloping the two. After some moments passed, this hungry lion made an example of a young hyena that made its way to close, warning the others to turn away.

In Deep Thought (@oliver.nicklin)

 I often find it hard to think of gorillas as animals and not people. They have such human features and expressions. 🦍 What's funny is I realised I was making the exact same face when I found this photo!

A Close Shave (@lionrecovery)

 A shocking photo from  @thewcs  in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda:  "Last month, one of the park’s lionesses ‘Naturinda’ got caught in a snare that almost took her life. Doctors came down in time and removed the snare and treated the wound. We are currently monitoring her closely as she slowly recovers from the deadly snare that almost cut her head off". The snares set by poachers for the bushmeat trade do more than eliminate lion prey. They also directly wound or kill lions. We acknowledge the hard work of the Uganda Wildlife Authority to tackle this scourge. The Lion Recovery Fund is working with partners across Africa to fight the illegal bushmeat trade so fewer lions end up like Naturinda."
